Words end Music by Gus Cannon
Arranged and Adapted by Arlo Guthrie

Put your arms around me
Like a circle `round the sun
You know I'll love you baby
When my easy ridin's done

CHORUS:
You don't believe I love you
Look at the fool I've been
You don't believe I'm sinkin'
Look at he hole I'm In
Stealin' stealin'
Prefty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' back to my
Same old used to be

Well I got me a woman
`Bout my size and height
She's a married woman
So you know she treats me right

CHORUS

Put your arms around me
Like a circle `round the sun
You know I'll love you baby
When my easy ridin's done

CHORUS

Well I got me a woman
`Bout my size and height
She's a married woman
So you know she treats me right
I don't believe I love you
Look at the fool I've been
I don't believe I'm sinkin"
Look at the hole I'm in

Stealin' stealin'
Pretty mama don't you tell on me
I'm stealin' back to my
Same old used to be

Stealin" back to my
Same old used to be
Stealin" back to my
Same old used to be
